Poor Little Rich Kids

More than four out of ten American millionaires say they do not feel rich. Indeed many would need to have at least $7.5 million in order to feel they were truly rich, according to a Fidelity Investments survey. Some 42 percent of the more than 1,000 millionaires surveyed by Fidelity said they did not feel wealthy.

Reading stuff like this is bad for my blood pressure. No, a million dollars won’t buy as much as it used to but come on! It’s that kind of greed fueled idiocy that makes me welcome the great equalizer that will be the zombie apocalypse. Let the roving mobs of mindless flesh starved undead be the guillotine of the next revolution!

Some men worship rank, some worship heroes, some worship power, some worship God, & over these ideals they dispute & cannot unite–but they all worship money. ~Mark Twain

    True, money doesn’t buy happiness but I suspect that I would be very happy with just a fraction of the $7.5 million they wish for.

    When you watch shows like the one on TLC about the parties that millionaires throw for kids with live performances by rock stars, animal rides, and gourmet food for babies, you understand why they feel that $7 million is not enough. It is because they are total jerks who waste money and spoil their family. Watch the lowlifes on any Real Housewives, the utter fools who think money equals class and see not how the other half lives, but how the idiot class lives.

    Look at Donald Trump. There is a lot to criticize him for, no doubt, but how did his kids turn out? They all graduated from prestigious schools on their own merits. They are well-spoken and act like dignified people. There has never been a scandal involving any of them. Now look at Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Nichole Ritchie. Just as rich, but utterly without brains or class.

    Money does not make someone nice or nasty, classy or classless, but it seems to bring out the inner person, and those who think that $7 million is not enough are obviously not quality people to begin with.

      Saying that 1 million isn’t enough out loud, so to speak, is a matter of a lack of class. Believing it to be true is plain old greed, whether a man acts as a proper gentleman or an utter fool.
